Gummy Worm Halloween Cupcakes

Yum
I'm more than a month early, but I'm getting into the Halloween spirit already.  The leaves are changing color and Fall is definitely in the air.  I decided to make these fun gummy worm cupcakes with my kids and we had a lot of fun.  This is not so much a recipe than a method of decorating cupcakes for a "ghoulish" good time.

Ingredients:
1 box yellow, white or chocolate cake mix
1 can of chocolate frosting
1 bag of gummy worms
10-12 Oreo cookies




Directions:

Prepare the cupcakes per package instructions.   Allow to cool well before proceeding to the decorating steps.





In a food processor crumb your Oreo cookies well. The Oreo cookies will represent the dirt. Pour crumbs into a bowl so you can dip your cupcake.






Frost your cupcake well then dip into the bowl of "dirt" Oreo crumbs and cover the top completely.






Place a gummy work on top of each cupcake and Enjoy.








Makes about 24 cup cakes.  Enjoy.

  6. We used to have "worms in the mud" when I was a kid. Same idea, but instead of the cupcake, just chocolate pudding. Thanks for sharing, I've got to do this with my kids soon. Oh, and I'm with you about getting an early start on Halloween. I've been pinning recipes and crafts for the last month!
